Special Education

We believe all kids can succeed! As part of our commitment to help all students reach their potential, we offer a top-notch special education program in all grades to identify, diagnose, and serve those students with special educational needs, disabilities, and/or giftedness.

Individualized Education Plans (IEPs)

Our special education program works with families to create Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) to meet the special needs of their children. This plan includes related services in and out of school, at no cost to the family, to complement the student’s personal instruction and ensure that he/she receives the most benefit from his/her education in the least restrictive environment.
